The Deep Roots Garden is a Community Garden project of Whole Foods Market. It is located on the banks of Shoal Creek on the Shoal Creek Hike and Bike Trail. This once-vacant lot is now home to a beautiful and flourishing herb and food garden where neighborhood residents and nonprofit partners work side by side. Made possible by Whole Kids Foundation, the Deep Roots garden provides a convenient downtown Austin location where volunteers can rent a garden plot and grow interesting food plants and other flora. The garden even has wifi! The excess harvest is donated to Austin hunger assistance programs.

Location: 717 Henderson St., 78703
